The Sport Fishing Institute of BC, representing the interest of hundreds of thousands of anglers and working together with community and industry groups across the province, is dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting the public ﬁshery on BC’s west coast and its vital role in our economy, and our traditional Coastal culture. Your support through the 2020 lottery will help secure a better future for our fishery and the resources it depends upon.
Supporting the activities of the SFI will assist British Columbians in accessing and enjoying public fisheries in BC. The public fishery is enjoyed by over 450,000 anglers every year.
As such we want to bring attention to and support for a Mark Selective Fishing (MSF) strategy as the best and most progressive solution to protecting our salmon, our economy, and our way of life. Please visit www.sportfishing.bc.ca or www.salmonforever.ca for more information.
